SuSE 10.3 with Microsoft Natural Keyboard 4000 doesn't work



Hi group,

I have a strange problem with my new keyboard and I can't solve it.
I would like to work with the F-keys but they doesn't act right. There
is no response when I press any F-key .
When I run "xev" and press F1 I get the following:

#####################################################################
KeyPress event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x3800001,
root 0x64, subw 0x0, time 1651434284, (-456,234), root:(386,714),
state 0x0, keycode 245 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False

XLookupString gives 0 bytes:

and also for F2 I got
#####################################################################

root 0x64, subw 0x0, time 1651509029, (-57,159), root:(785,639),

state 0x0, keycode 135 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False
##########################################################################

Please what can I do to activate these keys ?

thx
